Audrey Hepburn: Givenchy's Graceful Muse

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
 
Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn - a match made in heaven.  Similar ages, the French couturier and American screen star immediately empathised with each other - an intimate relationship that continued into old age.  
 
Givenchy intuitively understood Audrey's petite frame - the perfect foil it would seem for the sophisticated and ladylike look of the late 1950s and early 1960s - tiny waist, full skirt - often with underlay and a simply cut bodice, often collarless to show Audrey's swanlike neck. 
 
In turn, Audrey's iconic movies served as the perfect environment for the ultimate catwalk - raising Givenchy's profile.  And perhaps due to the timeless design of both the couture and the movies both are still much admired decades later.
 
Givenchy and Hepburn - classic, refined, urbane style.
